Reduce Food Waste

Reduce Food Waste

What change do you want to make now to address the climate change crisis? We would like to reduce food waste. What do you need to make this change? We should encourage shopping a little and often. Stop special offers in supermarkets that encourage buy one get one free and over shopping. Have community composting, Locally available, good quality and reasonably priced food. Life skills teaching to encourage cook well with fewer ingredients. Avoid over packaging, Community fridges in every community.

Points

If we all valued food, cut out waste in the supply chain, bought only what we need and not waste it, half the problem would be resolved.

I'm retired - I have the time to shop often - travelling to shops on foot or bus using concessionary travel pass I waste very little

you need to collect and use food waste (not done in the Borders here!!!! ) convert to energy... compost etc. then food waste (inevitable peelings, bones, scrapings) can be food sourced energy not food waste
